A statement piece is an amazing way to make any outfit stand out, whether it’s a large Boho necklace or a boldly printed pencil skirt. A vibrantly colored flattering jacket, like Monroe and Main’s new Stretch Cotton Bright Jacket in Berry, is one of the best ways to wear a statement piece. Here’s why we love the jacket so much:
What makes the jacket so great?
The Stretch Cotton Bright Jacket has all the makings of a true style staple. Its vibrant purple hue is perfect for embracing bright spring colors, and details like the ruffles and snaps around the collar and a zippered front make it both edgy and chic. Plus, the contoured seaming that creates a defined waistline is extremely flattering on any body type, and the seaming is shown off beautifully by the jacket’s lighter color.
Bright jackets and blazers are perfect for saying “hello” to spring weather because they can be added to almost any outfit for added warmth and extra panache. In fact, this jacket’s versatility when it comes to different outfits and occasions is one of the best parts about it. Here are some ideas for wearing the jacket (although we think it would look great when paired with almost anything – so get creative!)
Pair it with simple items
For people who love the jeans and T-shirt look, this jacket has all of the pizzazz needed to make your outfit even more amazing while still keeping your look simple and classic. Because the jacket hits right at the hips, it’s easy to wear with any style of jeans, from wide-leg to slim-cut and everything in between. Try it with a neutral-colored tee or tank top, or choose a top in a bright jewel tone that will make your outfit even more eye-catching.
Go for a bold print underneath
If you love prints and patterns, you’re in luck – they’re becoming even more popular this spring. So, pair the jacket with a boldly printed blouse, dress or skirt, and keep the rest of the outfit solid-colored and neutral. Look for a pattern with contrasting yet complementary colors – something in a soft moss or lime green would make for a great statement look.
Use black and white items
To make the jacket the main focus of your look, pair it with black and white clothing items for a more monochromatic and classic feel. Throw it on over a black jumpsuit to run errands around town or pair it with a black top and a black-and-white printed skirt or pair of pants. Round out the look with a beaded black necklace and a pair of simple neutral shoes.
Wear it to work
The Stretch Cotton Bright Jacket is truly versatile, and it’s perfect for incorporating into some of your work outfits. It’ll look stylish with everything from pencil skirts to trousers to all kinds of dresses. Go for a mostly neutral or black and white outfit for the office, and finish off the outfit with a cute pair of pumps.
